Community Evaluation Benchmarks

Implementing and achieving these priorities improve quality of life, help reduce healthcare costs, increase resilience, and make your community more attractive to people and businesses.

The evaluation benchmarks focus on where people live, work, learn, eat and play. They measure opportunities for increasing healthy eating and physical activity and decreasing tobacco usage. These things are vital to reducing the major causes of death and disability in our state.

Why does achieving these benchmarks matter?

These benchmarks are rooted in current health and wellness goals. They improve our citizen’s lives, attract a healthier workforce, and contribute to building more attractive and resilient communities. Celebrating Healthy West Virginia encourages implementing policies, programs, and activities that not only positively impact community residents, but also create an inviting environment for people working in and visiting your community.
